New Xbox One videos show the Snap and personalization features

We are now less than 10 days away from the launch of the Xbox One and today Microsoft offers up two more videos that show what their upcoming next-gen console can do. One of the clips showcases the pretty impressive Snap feature which lets Xbox One owners do two things at once.

The clip shows Microsoft's Xbox marketing head Yusuf Mehdi playing "Forza Motorsport 5" and in the middle of his race he says, "Xbox, show activity feed". The feed of his Xbox One friends quickly pops up to the right side of the screen while the game is still running. Other Snap activities shown in the video include bringing up Internet Explorer and watching TV, again while still playing "Forza Motorsport 5".

The other new clip shows Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb chatting with Xbox team members Emily Yang and Zach Gutt about some of the other features on the Xbox One. The video shows how the console can be set up so that when the owner walks into a room, the Kinect sensor can "see" that person and say, "Welcome back, John" or whomever is there. It also shows how the Xbox One dashboard for each users can be personalized with pinned apps, TV shows, movies and games.

Update: It looks like Microsoft has made the personalization video private for some reason
